Trivia[]

  • This marks:

    • The first TV appearances of Baby Bop, and Kathy.
    • The first time Jenny Dempsey performs as Baby Bop.
    • The only time where Baby Bop interrupts Kathy's song. In fact, this is the only time anyone is interrupted from singing.
  • The quote "He's tangled up in the jump-rope again." could possibly reference "Three Wishes", where Barney was also tangled in a jump-rope.
  • Several elements from this episode were later reused for the episode "The One and Only You".
  • This group (Tina, Luci, Kathy, Shawn, Michael and Derek) also appeared in "1-2-3-4-5 Senses!".
  • In the Hebrew version, where the cast member was singing "Hush Little Teddy" to her teddy bear, you can see Barney dancing in the background.
  • Tina's hairstyle from "Barney Goes to School" returns in this episode. It is later shown in "Our Earth, Our Home".
  • Michael, Tina, Luci, and Derek are the only ones who do not sing the "I Love You" song after they leave.
  • On the PBS Pledge Drive version of this episode, the songs "Family in the Dell" and "Where is Family?" were edited out to make the episode shorter. Also the ending to the "Barney Theme Song" is different than the original version. The Barney Says segment is also much different.
